Butterfly IconHummingbird Icon

Plant Type: Hostas

‘Night Before Christmas’ is a sport of Hosta ‘White Christmas’ with much heavier substance and a wider dark green margin. In early summer the large pointed leaves have creamy white centers that change to pure white during summer. A very good grower with pale lavender flowers.

This is one fabulous hosta! If you want to make visitors stop in their tracks and drop to their knees, here is the hosta for you. The 8″ long x 3″ wide leaves on this vigorous grower (sport of H. ‘White Christmas’) have a clear white center surrounded by a dark green border. In late summer, the old foliage turns solid green, allowing more food to be produced for the upcoming season. The 30″ wide clumps are topped with lavender flowers on 30″ scapes in early summer.
